The question is not what you or I think an assault weapon or rifle is but how each state defines them in their laws. Also I am sure you are aware the term assault weapon is commonly defined other than when it is particularly defined in specific state laws as ANY fully or semi automatic firearms with a detachable magazine, pistol grip and sometimes additonal features such as a vertical forward grip, flash suppressor or barrel shroud and any weapon created for military use. So you may not feel an M1 Carbine is not an assault rifle but I am sure you are aware in common usage it is, i.e., https://www.theregreview.org/2018/11/14/kopel-defining-assault-weapons/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assault_weapon https://giffords.org/lawcenter/gun-laws/policy-areas/hardware-ammunition/assault-weapons/ https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/assault-rifle Also I am not interested in playing semantics as to the words automatic weapon and automatic rifle as you are well aware the m1 Carbine is both. https://www.spslandforces.com/story/?id=485&h=Assault-Weapons-and-Assault-Rifles Also yes I am aware the M1 first had a cartridge of 15 bullets then was modified hold another 15. No I have never used one but you know they were not designed to hunt so why would you even attempt to suggest they were not designed as a military weapon designed to kill and facilitate killing precisely because of their military design.No they were not used or designed to hunt ducks.
